November 11, 1954, Les Sables d'Olonne, Vendée:

Reference number for this case: 11-Nov-54-Sables-d'Olonne. Thank you for including this reference number in any correspondence with me regarding this case.

Reports:

[Ref. bb1:] GERARD BARTHEL AND JACQUES BRUCKER:

The two authors quote the newspaper "La Vendée Libre" for November 14, 1954:

"Les Sables d'Olonne (85)."

"Several residents of Les Sables d'Olonne state in good faith to have seen at a very early hour, Thursday, a flying machine having the shape of a cigar, of which emanated drapes of various colors."

The two authors comment that the newspaper is mistaken in the date since they wrongly date two other cases as being of this same day, and that there was consequently no ufological occurrence on November 11.

[Ref. mv1:] "LES MYSTERES DE VENDEE" WEBSITE:

The website's author found this observation in Barthel and Brucker's book and notes the following:

[Ref. mv2:] "LES MYSTERES DE VENDEE" WEBSITE:

In his case listing "UFOs in the Vendée", the author notes this case:

Aizenay, La Roche-sur-Yon, Les Sables, 11 November 1954

Notes:

The newspaper "La Vendée Libre" for Sunday 14, November 14, 1954 writes that the sighting was on Thursday, and the Thursday preceding Sunday 14, November 14, 1954 is really Thursday, November 11, 1954.

Explanations:

Not looked for yet.

The case at least shows the intellectual weakness of the "analysis" by debunkers Barthel and Brucker, as rightfully exposed by [mv1].

Keywords:
